US Air Force day

Today marks the official 72nd Anniversary of the U.S. Air Force!  On September 18, 1947, Stuart Symington became the first Secretary of the Air Force as US Army Air Corps bases came under Air Force Command and a 4th branch of the U.S. Military was born. Through battle, training, and experience in their 72 years of service, the USAF has grown into a domineering world force of over 20,000 Pilots, 300k active troops, and more than 5,400 Aircraft across the globe.
